That's a Caprotti 5 isn't it: quite rare in steam days & presumably this is the only one left?
Les Auld: The only Caprotti Standard 5, The Duke of Gloucester also has Caprotti valve gear though. Thanks for the comment Chris.

Cracking shot Les, without the cones it could have been taken many years ago.
